Dubuque Invite - 1st Meet of Season

The 2015 track & field campaign kicked off Friday (GIRLS) and Saturday (BOYS) as the Madison Memorial squads traveled to the University of Dubuque in Iowa for their season opening competitions at the AY McDonald Indoor Track. This meet is a starting point for both teams as they look to build upon the success of last season. New events were tried, improvements were made by veteran athletes, newcomers experienced their first track meet, and fun was had been many. The next step is to learn from this meet, work hard every day at practice, and continue to improve. There are 8 weeks until Big 8 conference meets and 10 weeks until WIAA state which leaves plenty of time for improvement but will go by fast...take advantage of every practice & meet! At the Dubuque Invite the girls team scored 17 points to finish in 12th place Friday night while the boys team accumulated 44.5 points for a 5th place finish on Saturday. Both teams showed some great early season success against Iowa schools which were completing their indoor season as Wisconsin just opened up the season competing this week. Hopefully both teams build on this meet to defend their 2014 Madison Indoor City Championship titles this coming Saturday.

In the girls meet, points were scored by Delaney E for her 2nd place finish in the 1500m run (5:07.21), Holly H who had a PR of 35' 11" in the shot put for 4th, Phibi M who placed 6th in the 55m hurdles in 9.68, and Izzy O for her 8th place in the 3000m run (11:28.05).
